Stairway to heaven

Collection of objects, UV light, electric candle, painted wood.200 x 125 x 100 cm. A stepped pyramid-shaped altar reaches up to paradise. On every step, a group of objects have been left as offerings : A MacDonald’s “Petzz”, a chocolate 1euro coin, some plastic daffodils, a packet of Pipas Churruca a Star Wars fan, a BMW key ring, a “Frank” (hotdog) sausage, a Lilian Turam statuette, and on the last stair, a miniature figure of an American wrestler points upwards at the sky. All these objects are bathed in a UV sunset and in the flickering light of electric candles. This setting confers a new status on these banal items and turns them into cult objects.
